Thoughts on Being Overwhelmed

In today’s society, it seems that many of us feel overwhelmed at some point in life. This can be from work, school, moving, and many other things. Over time, if we are always living in this state, it could potentially lead to chronic stress and or major health issues. The question now is how do we live with it if we are unable to escape the stress of everyday life. More importantly, what are some things we can do as humans to help alleviate the stress and not being so overwhelmed?

One quote that sticks with me is from Timber Hawkeye, “you can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass”. With so much happening in our lives, it is vital that we find time for ourselves and know that we are not alone. Find a way to relax and de-stress. Look for an activity you enjoy doing or try discovering a new one that you’ve been wanting to do.

What helps me get through the tough times of being overwhelmed are things like exercising, talking with someone, cleaning, napping, and deep breathing. It is our jobs to find a couple of things that will help cope being overwhelmed. If things don’t get better, it is important to reach out to someone and ask for help. Through the thick of it all, know that you have a purpose in life. Keep that in mind to help you keep moving forward in life.

Lastly, make sure to surround yourself with successful people in your life and career. These people will always be there for you through the good times and bad times. Also, know that there are some days that are better than others. If you are having a bad day, leave that all behind. The trick is to find a way to reset quickly so you can have time to get back to a place of some control. If we can keep these points and steps in mind, life can be happier and less stressful.
